Looking for the ultimate challenge in 2013? Well Kilimanjaro is waiting for you.
At over 5,895m (over 19,000ft), Kilimanjaro is the highest freestanding mountain in the whole of Africa. With a diverse ecosystem taking you from cultivated farmlands on the lower levels, through lush rainforest and alpine meadow to barren lunar landscape at the top, you will watch the sunrise from the summit.
Following the Marangu route, it will take six days to reach the reach summit (Uhuru Peak) and you will stay in basic hut accommodation along the way. During your time on the mountain, you are supported by a fantastic African team who take care of everything, alongside a UK guide and doctor who ensure you have the best possible opportunity to reach the summit.
Kilimanjaro remains one of the hardest of charity challenges, however, with plenty of training before you go...you can definately achieve it!
"The hardest challenge I've ever done, but the most worthwhile. taking raising awareness to a new level...19,341ft to be exact. It was the experience of a lifetime."
Nicola Smith reached the summit at 6:30am on 28th September 2012
"It will truly be a life changing experience that will leave you wanting more. Be warned, once you climb Kilimanjaro, you will have caught the bug and crave your next challenge. I met friends for life on the mountain and you become so close so fast, especially when the most important question is if you've used the toilet yet."
